2!H MP play problem
Good line of play. Playing a diamond after the K is also a discovery play (who has the Ace?), which will help you guess spades correctly.
How many options would you consider?
And congratulations on your sportsmanship award, just learned about it!
How many options would you consider?
By consider, I meant what a sensible bridge player mind would consider... But what is sensible???
How many options would you consider?
Thanks Bharat! X is very flexible but hides the fit, which could be a problem for partner if the auction comes back to him at the 5-level. 4 is straightforward but not very descriptive. You would like to have a bit more for 4...
How many options would you consider?
This hand is an opening hand to me, so worth forcing to game. The question is how, and how much to involve partner in the auction.
How many options would you consider?
The hand seems to be somewhere between 4 and 4, perhaps closer to the former... The forcing pass topic has been mentioned a lot and argues in favor of 4. I was wondering how many people would consider doubling...
How many options would you consider?
Hey Michael, thanks for your note! According to the ACBL website, I am King Louis L (the 50th King of Bridge...).
How many options would you consider?
Agreed. 4 does create a forcing pass situation, or you would bid a weaker 4.
How many options would you consider?
I really like double, which also allows opener to pass and bid 3NT with the appropriate hands.
Presumed fit?
What a partner! An honor in your suit, no wasted values in hearts, 4 clubs with you... The only downside of partner's hand is that half of his points are wasted.
